>> test to put all the retail and restaurants and bars that are on the street so that before and after the festival, festival goers can go and patronize these establishments.

it's very important to us. * * you see our commitments with the restaurants. we have close to 60 restaurants out at the festival and 58 of them are local restaurants and of those 58, 50 are san francisco-based restaurants. we had 16 breweries out there this year and beer lands, four of those breweries, they're all northern california with the exception of one. but four were from san francisco proper. and then the wineries, we have 33 wineries out there and they're all from northern california. we're very supportive of the local businesses throughout san francisco, throughout the bay area, and we pay particular attention to the neighborhoods that surround the park because we do understand that those neighborhoods are being impacted most by this event. you know, gordos burritos,

[speaker not understood], and they have an extraordinary big weekend in the brick and mortar store as well as on the festival grounds. we have some vendors here today who will speak to that as well as [speaker not understood] feingold who oversees the local restaurants and the restaurant just down the street. >> i appreciate that and that commitment. one of the things i do want to be clear about, the area that i'm really concerned about is the area right on irving street closest to the impacting area where the 25th avenue entrance is. i don't believe there are many businesses there that participate in the festival. and i'm not saying that they have to be. but i really think they ought to have a fair shot. i think you really ought to make the effort to incorporate as much of our local merchants as possible. pacific catch is in the sunset, but it's in the inner sunset, not the outer sunset, the area that tends to be forgotten when it comes to the benefits and really making sure that you do the out reach. so, i would definitely encourage you to do that. >> absolutely. and if you have a contact for

the merchant association, if you could pass it along, that would be fantastic. >> great. and then to nick, then, just to follow-up on final questions. just remind me again in terms of the local hire. i want to thank supervisor mar for advocating for that. i think that's a great start. how many jobs did you say that would translate to? >> well, the commitments an annual job fair in the outer sunset and richmond. they are committed to having the two largest employers on the site, the two largest vending companies, the security company, and the beverage company who employ over 1200 patrons on-site, that they would work through that jobs fair to hire any available positions for the event. i do want to say i think the

event has already employed many of the principles of local hire and planning the entertainment for this festival to have 26% of their own staff. we're based in san francisco. local 16 who actually the stagehands at the festival, over 36% of their staff are san francisco residents. but working with supervisor mar and through his leadership, we are hoping to increase those numbers as we move forward. >> did you say over 25% of the beverage and [speaker not understood] -- >> there is not a quota per se. there is rather a commitment to fill those positions through a hiring fair held in either the sunset or the richmond. and obviously we're looking not only to hire san francisco residents, but to actually
